prices

April 17, 2007 | By More

This is a page I hope will be quite valuable for travellers coming to Brazil. A few items such as the ones I list here will not satisfy all the doubts a tourist might have, but they certainly give you a basic idea of prices and the cost of living in Brazil. In time, and with the help of the readers of this blog, I would like to turn this basic list into a more thorough listing available for download at this blog. As I explained in the presentation of the page I wrote in the blog, most of the prices listed here refer to the city of São Paulo, where I live.
